Diva's A To Z Blogging Challenge Theme


a-zBy now you would be aware that I’m taking part in the A to Z Blogging Challenge which kicks off on the 1st of April.  In fact I’m one of 1416 people who are participating.

This will be the 3rd blog challenge I’m participating in and the one thing I have learned from all of them is that – one must plan ahead.  A few months ago when I discovered this challenge, I actually wrote up 5-6 posts (with no theme) but those didn’t get transferred when I switched laptops.  So for the past few weeks I’ve been contemplating what sort of theme to focus the A to Z challenge around. Technically I can write about anything I want – or even use photos as long as it corresponds to the alphabet of the day and has about 100 words.

I’ve decided to go with the theme ‘A to Z of Blogging’ where I’ll associate each letter of the alphabet with tips / ideas of how you can enhance your blogging experience. 

Here’s a run down of the topics behind my Blogging theme (please feel free to add points on what you would want to read about or perhaps a topic that you feel I could include)

  1. A – about page / accountability / advertise /
  2. B – blog blog blog / bookmark your fav blogs /
  3. C – comments / challenges /cite your sources
  4. D – Delurk Yourself
  5. E – express yourself
  6. F – Follow others / Facebook / Friends
  7. G – guest bloggers / grow as a blogger
  8. H – humour
  9. I – Intense Debate / Interact
  10. M – make the time / music / Memes / mix it up
  11. N – new ideas / networked blogs / networking
  12. O – Opinions Matter / original posts
  13. P – pimp your blog on social networks
  14. Q – quotes / quality over quantity
  15. R – respond to comments / Read & Respond
  16. S – sexy Saturday / Sunday / Schedule your blog
  17. T – tweet away / tweet & tumblr
  18. V – visual content / video content
  19. W – wordless Wednesday / we heart it
  20. Y – your blogger voice

I’m having trouble with the below letters – and really hope you guys can give me some suggestions on what I can write about.  It’s like my mind is completely blank in trying to put together something for these letters.

  • J
  • K
  • L
  • U
  • X
  • Z

If you are participating in the challenge, have you decided on a theme ? What is it ? Do let me know if you can think of other tips I can throw in based on the alphabets.  If you aren’t participating, what are some of the topics you would like to read about based on my current theme ? If you fancy taking part, then feel free to sign up for the challenge here.

Love the theme idea! The last few are going to be a challenge 'x' is filling me with fear! My theme is as broad as always - relationships ! I've asked readers to suggest some ideas and so far have a couple of doozies! Good luck!

Really good theme. I'm having problems with some letters too.I have my first seven posts ready so I just hope I find something to write about for those difficult letters.

@ The Hopeful Romantic .. yaay !!! X is always a tricky one although you could title it the 'X-Files' :P Actually that might work really well. Can't wait to read your posts through the challenge :)

@ Cassam .. thanks for stopping by my blog & sharing your comments. Will definitely stop by your blog & see if I can suggest some themes to you. Looking forward to your posts. I'm still drafting a few of mine up.

Great theme, I love it! Mine theme for the challenge is Ways to Feel Fabulous from A to Z. Leaves it pretty open, but X is throwing me for a loop too!
